Gravestone of Girl who Died in 1761 Found, to be Rededicated
KEENE (AP) — A historical society is rededicating the gravestone of a 9-year-old girl who died in 1761 after it was found years later at a home near a Keene cemetery.
The Historical Society of Cheshire County and city of Keene say Betty Clark was buried at the Ash Swamp Cemetery. Her stone was removed more than 130 years ago and found supporting the steps of a home while the owner was doing repairs.
Her stone is scheduled to be rededicated Tuesday, adjacent to the slate stone of her father, Simeon Clark.
